Being inspired by the way Rainer Maria Rilke captured some of TRIZ essence in his poem written without any knowledge of TRIZ - and even more so, by the way Andre de Zanger sees Rilke capturing some of TRIZ essence , without any knowledge of TRIZ - I realized that John Cleese, prior to Monty Python, captured some of TRIZ-journal essence in this song:
I want another slice of rhubarb tart. I want another lovely slice. I'm not disparaging the blueberry pie, But rhubarb tart is, oh, so very nice. A rhubarb what? A rhubarb tart! A what-barb tart? A rhubarb tart! I want another slice of rhubarb tart! The principles of modern philosophy Were postulated by Descartes. Discarding everything he wasn't certain of, He said 'I think, therefore I am a rhubarb tart'. A rhubarb what? A rhubarb tart! A Rene who? Rene Descartes! Poor nut, he thought he was a rhubarb tart! Read all the existentialist philosophers, Like Schopenhauer and Jean-Paul Sartre. Even Martin Heidegger agrees on one thing: Eternal happiness is rhubarb tart. A rhubarb what? A rhubarb tart! A Jean-Paul who? A Jean-Paul Sartre! Eternal happiness is rhubarb tart. A rhubarb tart has fascinated all the poets, Especially the immortal bard. He caused Richard the Third to call on Bosworth Field: 'My kingdom for a slice of rhubarb tart!' A rhubarb what? A rhubarb bard! Immortal what? Immortal tart! As rhymes go, that is really pretty bard!
